Monstaaa! now available

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA, May 29, 2012 – Monstaaa!, a unique take on the tilting based games, launches today on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad as a universal app. Developed by independent developer, Pixel Elephant, the game features incredibly simple tilting based controls, beautiful painterly graphics, great level design and a lovable character. Additionally, all future levels will be available for free.

Beautiful, original and fun. Experience tilting based game like no other! The cave creature called Monstaaa is always hungry – simply tilt your device to feed him some delicious bugs and make him happy.

" During development of Monstaaa! a lot of time went into just polishing and tweaking all aspects of the game. We knew we had a good base concept there and we wanted to make sure the game shines in every aspect – from gameplay mechanics and physics, through controls, to audio and graphics. Our very modest hope is that players enjoy the final result and eventually simply... fall in love with the game. And if not, we're here listening to feedback and suggestions from everyone." said Maciej Sawitus.
